2014, What a year with Thirty-One!

Posted on

So, today I just have to reflect a little bit on my year with Thirty-One. What an amazing ride it has been. Every year out does the last and I am just so thankful for this company, my customers, my friends and family, and all of my sister consultants.

In the last 4 months, I have personally sold over $16,000 dollars in purses, bags, totes, and accessories! WOW! What an accomplishment for my own personal business. I have also sponsored 15 new recruits in the last 4 months.  But the best part is, I am having such a blast teaching my team every step of the way. Teaching has become my passion and I am so blessed to have an amazing group of ladies who put up with my crazy ideas every day!

This year I had the pleasure of speaking in front of 15,000 women at Thirty-One’s National Conference at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. For the introverted, shy, woman I once was…WOW! What an experience!! I was able to share some of my social media marketing tips with all of these fabulous women. And it was one of the most exciting experiences of my life!

Then I was able to participate in the Thirty-One Gives Toy Drive in New York City. Thirty-One donated $250,000 to the Today Show Toy Drive and we were able to be there to support our leader, Cindy Monroe, and help with a couple of charity events. What meant more than anything to me, was that my daughter was able to come with me and share in that incredible experience. Here’s some photos from our NYC trip and charity events:

And THEN…if I hadn’t had all the excitement I could possibly handle, I had the honor of being chosen to be featured in the new Spring and Summer 2015 catalog! I’ll never forget getting the call from Cindy Monroe! I was in my pajamas with a baby on my hip. Best. Day. EVER! So now I am part of the Circle of Honor and you’ll be able to see ME (holy moly!) in the brand new catalog.

I am just SO thankful for all the opportunities that have been laid before me. I cannot wait to see what 2015 holds for me, my family, my customers, my friends, and my Thirty-One sisters.  Thirty-One is an amazing ride. And if you’re thinking about joining us, don’t wait another second! There has never been a better time, and I would LOVE to talk more about it with you. So please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Cheers! From my family to yours, I wish everyone a VERY Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

    Love this post, Melissa! I’ve been secretly stalking your blog and posts on the 31 leadership pages for some time. I use your ideas in my business and share with my team too as I am a 31 director. I just want to say THANK YOU for the excitement you give me and my business and the fantastic ideas. Happy New Year! Excited to see what you accomplish in 2015!
